Ok, this not a question this is an educational statement! this to let ppl know, who don't know, that not all words are spelled the same. I was corrected on a word I used which was spelled correctly, but not the American spelling......as I am not American! and then I was told I was wrong? & that it was wrong!? seriously??? how ignorant.... in such an ignorant tone I couldn't believe it. This is also how British people spell their words!
For ppl who don't know here are some examples:
Color - Colour
Gray - Grey
Neighbor - Neighbour
theater - theatre
favor - favour
ETC. ETC. ETC.
So STOP correcting ppl when you see this as we are not all American & there is more then one dictionary in the world.
Thank you.....PLS BUMP...................... keep this going!

I am British and I'm now living in Canada. I remember when my children were young and watching Barney, I always had to correct Barney and teach my children that the last letter of the alphabet was zed not zee. I also had to correct the spelling on the occasional work sheet from school that was obviously American.
My daughter is now going to major in English when she starts university in September. I'm a proud mum lol.
